The UK government has detailed its plan for the "Broadband for All" scheme announced by PM Gordon Brown. Details were provided by Jim Knight, Schools Minister.

Initially there will be a pair of pilot schemes carried out in Suffolk and Oldham starting in February 2009 lasting the entire year. The plan will offer families grants to allow them to buy approved laptop or desktop systems and broadband access.

Friday the 24th of October will be "Get Online Day" around the country where people can visit UK online centers to get advice on what is available to them. Estimates believe that about a million homes in the UK could qualify for help.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
